Monday Round Up (02.01.10)

January 31, 2010

on_mondays“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

I had a much more productive reading week than I had the week before.

Finished:
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (finally!!!) – final thoughts still to come
Paper Towns by John Green – final thoughts also still to come

Started:
Austenland by Shannon Hale
The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman

Library Loot is hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures.

Although I have way too many books to read right now, my husband managed to twist my arm to accompany him on a trip to the library. But only to keep him company, not to get any books. That’s possible, right? Err, not so much. And I didn’t even pull out my list!

What did I get?
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells

Darn those Recommended Reading shelves.

sb10067729n-003Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

I had one book arrive in the mail this week:

Now & Then by Jacqueline Sheehan (won from Staci @ Life in the Thumb)

What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?

    Wow! Sounds like a really productive week! I like the way you combined the various memes to organize your reading in one post.

    I’ve got my notebook here, now, so I can jot down authors and titles.

    Have a great week!
